The Problem

Bridge maintenance is crucial to prolonging the life of any bridge and regular inspections are necessary to assess the condition of the bridge, it’s residual load capacity and maintenance requirements, particularly after an accident or natural disaster.

Damaged components can be repaired or replaced to extend the life of the bridge, minimize downtime and ensure it is safe and fit for purpose. Cable-supported bridges can require structural repairs including industrial coatings inside the footings.

Maintenance inside the footings of the suspension bridge can require work at height and confined space safety issues. Access to the footings is through a 28 “x 40” door. Strict safety protocols for the assessment and repair of bridge foundations are mandatory.

The Solution

The LOBO Scaffold System is a re-configurable scaffolding work platform product that combines the flexibility and strength of traditional scaffolding with the simplicity and mobility of tower systems. This combination provides a versatile access system that has applications across the maintenance Industry. The LOBO Scaffold System, utilizing its unique patented clamp, can be reconfigured and adjusted, without the need for tools, into any shape or size required. This simple system can be assembled by anyone, as the components are modular. LOBO’s electroplated steel legs and components can be flat packed when not in use and transported easily, for storage or utilization elsewhere, especially suitable for restricted entry points.

This means out-sourced scaffolding labor costs can be reduced without compromising safety. Areas, previously considered difficult to get to, can now be accessed with ease for maintenance and cleaning purposes. As it is available 24/7 it puts you in control of your maintenance tasks. Your in-house maintenance crews can assemble the LOBO Scaffold System quickly, easily and safely around, under or above cables, anchorage points, and slopes. To ensure safety, handrails can be fitted in seconds, at any point in the system, and at any stage of the assembly process. Staff should never be exposed to the risk of a fall.

The Benefits

LOBO is scalable, adaptable and adjustable to meet your ongoing and changing requirements. Simply add more components or alter your existing configuration to satisfy the demands of the next task. Protect your initial investment with a product that will meet all your access needs safely. LOBO is a rigid and stable product, which meets or exceeds current safety regulations. LOBO Towerstore
